It’s Saint Patrick’s Day weekend… while many are out drinking green brews, gathering around green rivers (Here’s looking at you, Chicago!) and hoping for the best of lucks - I am reminiscing over some of my favorite green moments with design. To be totally honest, it looks like a large amount of them deal with green velvet…

GREEN VELVET CHESTERFIELDS

There are two things that my design soul loves, and here I get to combine them all. A classic chesterfield + a juicy green velvet. Life, complete. Paired with the colorful antique area rug and its the perfect situation of color, traditional elements and modern whimsy.

CHARTREUSE GREEN DRAPERY

What a fun space this is - silky chartreuse drapery with a pop of magenta on the leading edge. The beautiful green and magenta was delicately sprinkled throughout the rooms offset with rich black walls.

CHIC CEO OFFICE

This CEO’s office is anything but boring, this super amazing sofa is like sitting on an emerald cloud, pure heaven. I love how the entire room jives so well with the antiques, color, layers of art all while not distracting from that amazing city view!

WILLIAM MORRIS WALLPAPER

What would a conversation about design be here, without at least one wallpaper showcase?! I LOVE this classic William Morris pattern wallcovering in this home office. The shades are green are so beautiful with the pops of orange hues.

OUTDOOR SPACE AT MANDARIN HEIGHTS

This tile for the outdoor space at Mandarin Heights makes us think of an abstract take on the forever famous banana leaf motif.

GREEN VELVET SECTIONAL

So, this may come as a surprise to you… (or maybe not at all!) But my personal home has velvet of its own. Everyday I walk into my living room I love this green velvet sectional finished off with the perfect antique brass nailheads. Double bonus - it’s ultra comfy, too!

I’m always inspired by my surroundings for design - there is something about the fresh green hues that our lovely mother nature has to offer that allows my heart to flutter and feel extra inspired for our projects.

So how do you take your green? Would you implement it into your home environment or would you rather keep it in your festive beer?

With love & design-y dreams,

DESIGN CHAT:: PARISIAN INTERIORS

INSPIRING INTERIORS OF PARIS

Paris is a place where, for me, just walking down a street that I’ve never been down before is like going to a movie or something. Just wandering the city is entertainment.”
— Wes Anderson

There is something about the Parisian interior. There is a certain magic to it. It has an effortless vibe. Things blend so organically together, even though you know that they really had no prior orientation together before coming together in a certain room. But it just flows, they aren’t overthought, they aren’t overdone, they are elegant, chic and leave you craving more.

There seems to always be a spot for books - an overflowing amount of books. Just enough to get lost in.

The Parisian interior is curated and welcoming. You feel wrapped up, safe and inspired. Really, you never want to leave.

The Ritz Paris

Even their tattoo studios are well designed, I couldn’t help but smile with this fresh and inviting space for Désolée Papa

I’m not sure about you, but Paris is a place of inspiration and excitement for me. It’s rare there isn’t a smile on my face with every turn of a corner. What are some of your favorite Parisian moments and must stop places?

DESIGN CHAT:: WINTER WHITES

SOFT MONOCHROMATIC INTERIOR DESIGN

January, new beginnings, cooler temps and in some areas snow days. What is it about a fresh new snow that feels so good? (Unless you have to shovel it, of course)

All of these chilly days and thoughts of snow have us reminiscing our favorite monochromatic white spaces that we have designed over the years:

Symmetry and balance at it’s finest. This classic interior will forever be one of our favorites.


Mid Century Modern interior by Lisa Gilmore Design

An oldie, but definitely a goodie. The way the shiny terrazzo floors, chrome details and white upholstery played with each other, makes the sunshine bounce heavenly through the space.

While this space isn’t completely just white, we can’t help but adore this lake house interior with it’s crisp white design, lucite cocktail table and jolts of navy blue.


Traditional foyer by Lisa Gilmore Design | Native House Photography

Classic tufting, mahogany, hand blocked wallpaper finished with a beautiful collection of botanical imagery. This monochromatic foyer is ever so pleasing.

Those beams, that chandelier, the bright walls in contrast with the dark trim. There is so much we love about this space, the layout, the texture and all the monochromatic calmness.

Where ever your winter days may find you, we hope you are enjoying them in a beautiful space, hopefully with a cozy fire nearby.
